Online PhD Programs in Accounting

Accounting, or bookkeeping, is the act of keeping financial records for a business or company. Many businesses hire accountants to maintain records--including accounts payable and receivable, receipts, and profits. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, accounting is one of the largest growth occupations, with 22 percent job growth expected between 2008 and 2018. Those who are interested in a career in accounting are often required to have at least a bachelor's degree in accounting or a related field. Those who wish to advance in accounting can also choose to receive a master's degree and a D.B.A, or a PhD in business administration. D.B.A in accounting classes teach students business theory and management skills. Several schools offer online D.B.A in accounting courses that make it simple for students to build on master's-level skills and also assist in the comprehension of theoretical literature for businesses. Students who wish to have a greater understanding of contemporary accounting theory can pursue online courses for a D.B.A in accounting. Those who receive a D.B.A in accounting can pursue careers in management science, economics, finance, or technology management. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that the mean annual wage for accountants was $60,340 in 2009.
